Hi all -

I know I raised this on the blog the other day, but wanted some feedback here. Guy in my league (12-team H2H, 5 x 5 plus OBP and Holds) has Burrell on the block and I'm almost certain he'd take Rios for him. Thing is, Rios is probably my most productive source of steals (but not much else!). Can i afford to give him up for Burrell? He would obviously give me a lift in HR, RBI and probably OBP. Screenshot of my roster below.

Yes, I think you can go after Burrell.

If you want me to look at your team, post the team. Don't post a link to another site where the team is.
Have you given me all the info I need to judge your team? The number of teams in the league is a good start for the big overall questions.
Is your league H2H? Roto?
I don't know who's on your waivers. Don't just ask me who you should pick up. Give me names to choose from.
If you only have one team, post your team in your signature with the league parameters.
I don't know every single matchup for next week, so if you want me to choose a player for the following week and you think the matchups are important, tell me who they're facing.

Grab Hairston Jr for a bit of SB insurance? Pierre, Car-Go, DeJesus and Lewis also available as CFs.

Gerut is too. Not really a SB threat, but red-hot right now...

I'd grab Carlos Gomez for short schedule days and days some of your guys are banged up. Might be able to steal some cheap steals.

Thanks. Is Gomez starting right now? The Burrell trade is done, by the way.

That news tempered by Mike G's effort on the mound today. When you're relievers-only, it's not good.

I think I know the answer already, but any chance Olsen or Kuroda can pull those ratios back tomorrow?

Gomez has been starting and hitting well in the ninth hole. Maybe the less pressure is agreeing with him.

Olsen and Kuroda? Eh.
